Sadly it does. I believe that there are some things that you can't do from a distance. It's personal. We have to be here. We have to, we have to wrap our arms around physically around people who are weeping. It's just knowing that somebody's life. You know, lives were snuffed out prematurely. You know, senseless from a senseless act of violence. Still brings tears? Yeah yeah. What are you thinking? What do you feel? Where's that pain? What are you thinking about? Thinking about those that lost their loved ones and children that lost their parents grandparents. There's power in prayer we will continue to pray it.
